No, I don't mean the colonel and his staff were throwing dead chickens at me (hahaha) but that this place got a lot of hits from the KFC (Kung Fu Cinema) message board yesterday. I've just this minute come back from the Google Analytics office and I could see that actually the most hits yesterday came from KFC. I must admit I was slightly curious as to why cos, well, lets face it, I don't spend much time on karate films on this here site. LOL.

Anyway, "Knockabout" (another Dane btw, this one located in California) linked to my blog as someone had placed the unusual question (for a martial arts forum anyway) of "Anybody know ANYTHING 'bout dis 'Pino flick?". The film in question is DARK DAY EXPRESS and... uh... thanks for the confidence, Michael (Knockabout) but, eh, I'm afraid I won't be of much help. I know, I know, you're shocked, ay. LOL. But this is one mysterious muther if there ever was one. Not even Jesus Manuel seems to know about it; He did actually post about it a few weeks back but with zilch info.
The scarce info that I do have is this: It's a film from Filmark International in Hong Kong (i.e. it may not have anything to do with the Philippines at all). The poster on KFC mentioned the film is from 1987. It's out on VHS in Spain but I haven't got a copy and I don't have any info on other releases either. Needless to say, if any of you have any info on the film or other releases (an English or even German dubbed version would be nice) then do tell. Cheers.
